HELP! I have an interview and I need to prepare!


A few months ago, I had to prepare a conference in English on a rather specific and complex subject, so I asked Jackie for help. In personalized ––and entertaining!–– sessions, in a very pleasant environment, she helped me with the translation of my presentation into English, and coached my delivery and pronunciation so I could give a professional performance. It goes without saying that the presentation was a complete success. Thank you Jackie!!!
